The Indo-Pakistan Conflict refers to the tense relationship and subsequent ColdWar between the Republic of India and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Tensions were kicked off during ThePartitionOfIndia back in 1947, which violently split the subcontinent into majority Hindu and Muslim regions, India and Pakistan respectively. Because of the nature of why it occured, how it occured, and the immediate conflict over Kashmir the very next year, the two sister nations relations were soured from birth. This tension would lead to two more massive wars and a couple of smaller skirmishes between the two nations. It also led both nations to pursue nuclear weapons, India getting it first in 1974 and Pakistan in 1998.
The overall conflict is best illustrated by the conflicts that made it up:
!The Indo-Pakistan War of 1947 (also known as the First Kashmir War)
!The Indo-Pakistan War of 1965 (also known as the Second Kashmir War)
!The Indo-Pakistan War of 1971 (concurrent to and part of the Bangladesh Liberation War)
!The Siachen Conflict
!The Kargil War
